Here's another suggestion for your first post, when you get back Alice:

The red spirals topic.

I've been looking for that one a couple of times and recently there turned up a few of them :)

Forgot to do this, but hey, better late than never ;) and thanks for putting the link up, always appreciated! :)

Do you know of the thread dedicated to stars and satalite trails? I can never find it, and there are some amazing ones there.

LOL, I've just realised we can talk in this one and not the Stunning Sights one. I'm running an experiment, then, to see which method works better. ;D

I would like the same list in both places, 9 times out of 10 when looking for one of these I start in the wrong one...

Maybe we need a separate board. But the lists get almost as long as each board does . . .

I'm giving this topic a make-over. Please cast an eye over the first page and let me know your thoughts - thanks! Also would it be better locked and stickied, or shall we continue to chat in here?

Perhaps a list of 'catalog' threads already exists, but I couldn't find it; does anyone know where it might be?

Here are some catalog threads that I have found very useful:

UGC Catalog

NGC Catalogue

IC catalogue

Are there any others?

This is kinda the reverse of this sort of thread: Identification list of all posted nebulae.

One such I'd like to start, if it hasn't already been done is an Arp thread, as in the galaxies in Arp's ATLAS OF PECULIAR GALAXIES (I searched using the obvious words, and found nothing, but that doesn't one doesn't exist!).

This would certainly require less effort than an RC3 thread!  :D

RC3 = Third Reference Catalog of Bright Galaxies

Also, could threads like these be added to the list on the first page?

IMHO

Indeed, and that thread's first post is very similar, if not identical, to this one's.

Another catalog thread (or close to it): Another great Markarian, we need a thread for these.

:D I am confused a natural state I assure you. This is the "Weird & Wonderful" Index that Alice has under construction it contains the threads on this Weird & Wonderful Board , that zooites like to post in. (Which includes Another great Markarian, we need a thread for these.)

Now these: UGC Catalog, NGC Catalogue, IC catalogue are threads that zooites also like to post in on the "Stunning sights! Board". Which should be listed in the Stunning sights Index....Oh running over to see if they are already there...not yet. I am sure they will be there soon.
 I assume by Catalog you are talking about threads?

So my question is what exactly do you want to do? ;D
Oh I do hope that was clear.

Thanks for the suggestions, keep them coming! ;D

The error is entirely mine, sorry.  :-[

I thought the two stickied threads - in Weird and Stunning - were pretty much the same.  It turns out that they have only one thread in common (Nearby galaxies z < 0.004)!

I guess the sort of thing I'm looking for is a sticky which points zooites to great threads (including catalogs), whether they are in Weird or Stunning (or, indeed, Hubble, or Merger).

I myself find I get confused as to whether something is in a great thread in Weird or in Stunning, so I often use the Search function (which is pretty darn inefficient) rather than going straight to a stickied post with a comprehensive list of great GZ forum threads.
